Look for an offensive lineman to come to B.C for Simon.

Retarded trade. Should of just let him stay here and retire. Still more or less our best and most reliable reciever. Mostly sucks because he was such a fan favourite.

I love Geroy Simon, he's the greatest British Columbia Lion ever, and a top 5 all-time athlete in this city.


But this trade had to happen.


Geroy Simon is 37 going on 38 and has clearly lost a step the last couple seasons. He still has amazing hands and is a superb route-runner but he needed to take a lesser role this season. We have 3 young, very promising imports chompin' at the bit in Nick Moore, Courtney Taylor and Ernest Jackson. All 3 provide more speed and athleticism to our offence. Thankfully they had someone like Geroy Simon mentoring them and showing them what it takes.

I love Wally Buono too. The man in charge is strictly all business, and it will pay off on the football field.

Can't wait until the Riders and Geroy return.


Oh and Justin Harper looks like he could be something special as well.

I totally know what you're saying, but let's put it into hockey terms.

Geroy wanted to be a top 6 forward, Wally wanted him in our bottom 6. His play IMO suggests the latter.


For Geroy to stay and retire Trevor Linden style, he would've had to accept a lesser role like Trevor did.

Reilly to the Eskimos. I sure wish Wally would trade east more often. I'm not looking forward to playing Edmonton now. Glad we locked up Gore though!!

On Monday I was passing through the lobby of the hotel where I work and noticed a big guy looking at his phone. The guy looked very familiar.

Looking again, I realized that I was looking at Angus Reid. Moving further into the lobby I see Rolly Lumbala and JR LaRose sitting in chairs. Apparently, the boys were in town to visit some of the local schools (My daughter later came home with a pic of her and Lumbala)

Looking forward to the start of the season!

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Very cool! I saw him tweeting pictures of Rupert and the salmon packing plant. Angus is a good guy.

Done deal: Lions get ’14 Grey Cup

March 7, 2013. 11:28 am • Section: The Fifth Quarter

Posted Image

A bit of work a few months back has morphed into the signature game of the 2014 CFL season coming to B.C. Place Stadium again. All the B.C. Lions hope is for a repeat scenario of the last time they played host to the Grey Cup.

Lions president Dennis Skulsky told Business in Vancouver today that a news conference likely announcing details will take place Friday. It’ll be the second time in four seasons that the game will be held in Vancouver. The last game, in 2011, ended with the Lions holding the Grey Cup for the sixth time in franchise history.

B.C. officials got wind of the fact the game could come available several months ago and approached the provincial government for funding in order to stage the event.

The government pledged $2.7 million in its most recent budget to help cover costs, having put up $2.01 million to stage the 2011 game. Club president Dennis Skulsky told The Province last month that the local economy more than benefitted by the funds, with some $118 million coming back from out-of-town visitors.

The game was originally ticketed to be played in Winnipeg, which is opening Investors Group Field this summer. Winnipeg officials denied that finances played a factor in deferring the game, suggesting the club wanted to get through a first season of operation.

That played into the hands of the Lions, who have some quick planning to do as a result.

Surprised no one is talking about this. Sounds like some of his team mates are pretty happy he's gone. Not well liked on the team.

Many seem to be questioning the integrity of this trade considering the teams have the same owner.

Wow, listening to what Khalif's saying...he actually wants out of TO to come to the West...says he plans on making life hell for the Lions. Sounds like a real winner...very bitter, cocky, full of himself and absolutely not a team player by all accounts.

As someone tweeted "good riddance".
